Ancelotti says heavy defeat of Real Madrid by Man City ‘hurts a lot’


Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti has said that the 4-0 defeat of his team by Manchester City is a defeat that is extremely painful.

He said, “It’s a defeat that hurts, it hurts a lot. But sometimes it can happen in football.

“You get to the Champions League semifinals against a strong opponent, they play better than you and deserve to get to the final. We have to think about next season, the next Champions League, to learn and be better.”

“The opponent was better from beginning to end,” defender Dani Carvajal said. “We lacked a bit of… I wouldn’t say attitude. But we sat back too soon. And when we took a step forward, we had our best minutes.”
